A Child’s Carefree Innocence – A prayer

image

TWINKLE, TWINKLE LITTLE STAR*

Give me the eyes of a child, Oh Lord

Fill my inner being with wonder and amazement

Restore this wounded and broken spirit

Replenish my soul to the time of my birth

Let not the beauty you set before me fade from my view

Give me the ears of a child, Dear God

Let carefree whispers fill my hearing

image

HOW I WONDER WHAT YOU ARE*

Help me to no longer buy into the enemy’s accusations

Send a word of healing, lead me to crystal waters

To the springs from which I may quench my thirst

Give me the mouth of a child, Holy Father

Let abundance flow from your mouth

Let only your glory pour out of my lips

Allow my words to bear the sweetness of honey

image

UP ABOVE THE WORLD SO HIGH*

Let there be healing through words of encouragement

Give me the mind of a child, Oh Graceful One

Let your light pierce through clouds of oppression

Place a hedge of protection around me

Bind the thief that steals, kills and destroys

Shut out thoughts of discouragement

Give me the soul of a child, Mighty One

image

LIKE A DIAMOND IN THE SKY*

Remove the isolation and the plaguing heavy load

Free me from encompassing oppressors

Chain the giant of despair that grasps my throat

Breathe life once more into a spirit that cries out for you

Give me the heart of a child, Oh Heavenly Father

Release me  from the realm of darkness as I fight for my heart

Tear down any wall that stands between us

Remove any footholds that keep me penned

So that I may believe in purity and beauty once again

Lord, please lead me, I long for your direction.  I will follow you to the place of pure life and joy.

I long for you to place me under the safety of your wings.  Return to me a child’s carefree innocence.  Amen.

*Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star was originally a poem called The Star written in the early 19th century by Jane Taylor, then later arranged to music written by Mozart at the age of three.

    Amen! Such a great prayer for us all to live. The kingdom belongs to those with innocent hearts and trusting souls…(children-like). Good job…
